    This is a great pattern but I found that on the last “7” stiches, I actually have 8. I made this up by doing 6 sc’s instead of 5. I’m wondering how many multiples of the chain should I do for a pretty nice adult blanket?

      I can not tell you that. It depends on how big you want to make it, what yarn you’re using, what hook you’re using, and at what gauge you crochet.
